    Chaps and Chapesses.

    Fast ball in late last night, currently en route back from theatre is a soldier, about to be fed the worst news imaginable about his young child.

    I won't go into it as this one isn't too far from home.

    I need to get the family away on Saturday morning so the clock is against us.

    I have a small balance left over from the last plea, but we need a further £659 to make this happen.

    Help us give this family some quality time together before things take an even shittier turn for the worst.

    Holidays for Heroes doesn't have a PayPal account as they won't recognise that we're a non-profit community group. You could use shopgirl's account rb0@live.co.uk *. She passes the money to us. If you say it's a gift, PayPal won't impose charges.

    * That's a zero, not a letter 'O'.

  9. OK - that is what I will do. Money incoming.

    Can you let me know if it gets there OK. I am sending in the next few minutes.
  10. Money sent
  11. Chucked in what I could, sorry couldn't be more

    Thanks RAB. I'll text shopgirl and ask her to check.

    You're an angel, as are so many ARRSers, who seem to rally round when we need them most!
